Title: HEROES OF THE DESERT: THE LIVES AND TEACHINGS OF THE DESERT FATHERS AND MOTHERS Disc 3 of 5 (Includes CD 52260 to CD 52264)
Discover the timeless wisdom of our spiritual ancestors in these 15 25-minute lectures on 5 CDs. Beginning in the 3rd century A.D. pious men and women journeyed into the Egyptian desert, where they sought to be "alone with God alone." Known as the Desert Fathers and Mothers, they pursued lives of solitude and prayer in order to make complete offerings of themselves to God. In doing so, they acquired great insight into the spiritual life, which has been passed down to us in the Sayings of the Desert Fathers, a timeless collection of profound wisdom. Like the monks themselves, the teachings of the desert are characterized by their simplicity, practicality and timelessness. Disc 3 includes A Garden in the Wilderness Topic 7: The Words of the Fathers; Topic 8: Saint Arsenius and Saint Marcarius; and Topic 9: Saint John and Saint Poemon.
